    Kristi – sorry to see your dad has passed. Hope you and your family find peace and comfort soon.
    My mom and dad enjoyed being friends with your parents back in the 1980’s when they were all in community.

    Daniel was my Godfather, I did not know him very well, but I remember being in servant camp with Alirio and Nelson. May God grant him the everlasting peace of Jesus.
